Solar prominences come in every shape and size as illustrated in this survey captured from 2005 to 2009. I've titled these as I see them, but you might prefer to supply your own. The character of the prominences has become increasingly wispy and delicate as we move towards the minimum in the solar activity cycle in 2008.
